N'Zonzi has labeled the Potters faithful as the best in the Premier League after spending the past three years at the Britannia Stadium.
Having recently completed a £7million move to Andalusia, N'Zonzi took the time out to thank his former side and lavished special praise on the club's vocal supporters.
The Frenchman told the Stoke Sentinel: "My team-mates, the staff and the manager were all fantastic, but especially the fans. They have always supported me since I first joined and I really want to thank them.
"I might be biased but it's not just because I played for them, they are the best and loudest supporters in the Premier League. I will still follow Stoke. I have many good friends there and I will always be checking for the results. I would like to come back as a fan.
"The Liverpool match was the best final game I could imagine. It is one of my best memories. I will never forget Marko Arnautovic asking the fans to chant my name. He's my boy, a good guy and a great player."
